Prevent Muscle Loss As You Age
by Jackie Burgmann, creator of "Hot at Home" - The Transformation Solution for People Who Hate The Gym
We all age. There's no denying that. Even as you sit here reading this article you are aging. In tiny increments, sure. But it's happening, nonetheless.
And, let's face it, we HAVE to age ... because the alternative isn't such a great option.
But, what DOES happen to us as we age?
A condition called "Sarcopenia" is what happens.
This is the process of losing muscle as we get older. It can happen to everyone.
Winding up with Sarcopenia results in loss of coordination, loss of flexibility and loss of mobility.
If you want to continue simply being able to move around comfortably and continue being active even as you get older then keep reading and find out how you can avoid it's inevitable effects, because NOW is the time to do something about Sarcopenia.
How do you prevent Sarcopenia from happening? It's actually pretty darned simple.
Don't let your muscles sit around unused. If you use them, you get to keep them.
If you don't use them, you lose them.
Yes, it is THAT simple.
Do you have a muscle building component in your current health, fitness and/or weight loss programs?
If you don't, it's time to start.
It's the best way to prevent Sarcopenia from claiming you as it's next victim.
If preventing Sarcopenia isn't enough of a reason for you to incorporate some strength training into your programs, how about the fact that trained muscle burns more calories (even at rest) than untrained muscle or fat does? This means you get to enjoy more food without worrying that it's packing on the pounds all the time.
Learn how to hang on to your muscle NOW (and build even more) so that you can continue to enjoy living as you age, instead of just sitting around waiting to die.
It's becoming common knowledge these days that getting, being and staying fit is the "Fountain of Youth". I'm proof that this is true. I just turned 48 years old last month. Do you think I look pretty good for my age? (see the Hot at Home main page for pics if you don't know what I look like)
Not to toot my own horn but I've been told over and over that I do. And I always feel grateful for the compliments, but I worked hard for this. I deserve it.
So do you.
Still not convinced? If you're a woman, I'll bet I can guess why.
I hear all the time from women that they refuse to strength train because they're worried about 'bulking up'.
The truth is that women just do not produce enough testosterone in their bodies to 'bulk up' (unless they're taking illegal pharmaceuticals). What you will achieve is a slim, sexy body with that 'toned' look and some nicely defined arms, legs, back and tummy.
I'm also proof of this fact. I weight train and I weight train HEAVY. Do I look 'all bulked up' to YOU?
So, if you are, or know a woman that's skipping out on this important component in their fitness programs, smarten them up and get them lifting now and lifting heavy.
The "MAGIC FORMULA" is this:
Save Your Muscle + Build More Muscle + Keep Active = Stay Young, Be Energized and Feel
It's a pretty simple formula. And it's not even that hard to accomplish.
Do the kind of exercise that makes you happy and motivated, just make sure you're moving your body vigorously regularly, get your heart rate up often, and lift heavy things that give your muscles a reason to hang around.
And never worry about falling victim to Sarcopenia. Enjoy your life, even into your golden years.
Don't fall victim to Sarcopenia. Make sure you've got an effective fat loss fitness program that includes a properly balanced full-body strength training component.
